2004 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1er Cru Classe, Pauillac
|Producer:||Chateau Mouton Rothschild|
|Grape variety:||Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Origin:||France, Bordeaux, Médoc|
Really toasted vanilla and mocha with wonderful fruit concentrates in equal measure. Full, ripe, generous, lively. Drink 2013-22.
Huge colour, but velvety smooth, beautifully extracted ripe Cabernet fruit, less oaky and less exotic than 2003, but firmer and with a wonderful depth of fleshy fruit backed by rich tannins, superb vinification, definition and great length. Drink 2012-40. (19 points)
